1-800-Cinchers was founded by a woman who I can relate to. After having a c-section, the founder of 1-800-cinchers went in search of a waist reducing technique, and found one by looking at what women did from her home country.
I’ve had 2 c-sections, and despite weighing the same as I did before my first child, I still had a post-pregnancy shaped stomach. Crunches and sit-ups didn’t help, weight-loss helped lose some of the weight, tea helped lose some of the weight and helped with bloat – but . . . that c-section stomach would not go away!
I received the 3-Hook Waist Cincher to wear while working out. The instructions do suggest that you get someone to help get the cincher on, but I put mine on by myself. They are slightly difficult to get on at first without any help, and will fit very tight, but with some practice it is really easy. The first 2-3 times was difficult but now it is really easy to put my cincher on.
It’s suppose to fit tight, because that is how it tightens your core and reduces your waistline. While wearing my cincher I also noticed that I stand up straighter and taller which can help with your posture. It’s very important to practice good posture, not only for your health, but also because good posture helps reduce your waistline, especially after c-sections or after acquiring diastasis recti.
I’ve been wearing my 3-hook Cincher for a few months now and it’s still in good condition. I started with a 33in waist and at 120lbs and I now have a 29in waist and weigh 115lbs. Now that my core has improved, I’m ready to challenge myself with more difficult exercises – while wearing my cincher of course!
